    Pros

    This company is just the best! It allows you to reach your full potential and then pushes even more! Challenging, supporting work environment that feels like family.

    Cons

    none at this moment; excited for the future of this company

    Keep having town hall meetings; they make the remote work force feel very much a part of the process.

    Continue to set an example of who Stryker is and why we are successful.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time

    Pros

    School Reimbursement is up to $15000 a year. Great mission.

    Cons

    Health, PTO, pretty much all benefits, and pay. Really not on par with other industries in area.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that the west coast is not Kalamazoo. You will get more talented employees and keep good ones if you pay them a fair wage for the area.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Benefits
    - Ability to move positions
    - Ability to move across divisions
    - Opportunities for resume building activities in committees like SEEC, SWN, Strive, etc.
    - Global company means growth
    - Stability

    Cons

    - Hard to get promoted if you don't kiss the right butt
    - GQO management needs an overhaul
    - Opportunities to have voice heard are great, however, when it is outside of Q12, things don't get done.

    Advice to Management

    GQO is flailing and questionable. Your employees run wild and have little accountability. Projects have poor communication with division counterparts and try to take over division.

    Division management is doing well. Listen to employee ideas that don't have to do with Q12 (this is a middle management issue).

    I worked at Stryker full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You gain a lot of experience in the corporate world.
    They try to bring everyone together for fun events
    Sometimes the have kegs and free food

    Cons

    Management is TERRIBLE, they started micromanaging and trying to disguise it by saying we are going more "modern"
    The teams are always against each other, especially out in the field. Management does NOT let anyone out in the field know whats going on in house.
    On the team I was on, the team was extremely negative all the time. The like to blame others for how they act. Its miserable going into work everyday with people who don't want to be there.
    They started this "PIP" thing (Performance Improvement Plan) they don't give you any warnings before you're put on it, they don't let you change anything they just BAM put you on it and you can moved or be promoted in a year! They are just passing them out now because they don't want anyone to leave their positions.
    They never actually invest in good talent. (A lot of it depends on the team you are on and the director you have)

    Advice to Management

    Actually put people who know how to do the job in management positions, don't bring someone over from HR to a tech team? That doesn't make any sense. INVEST in talent, don't just cover it up. AND keep the promises you made.

    Actually develop talent, if you don't they will end up going somewhere that will.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great products which sells for themselves, god salary and easy working atmosphere

    Cons

    Lack of experienced employees and who only have worked for Stryker for many years. Not open to changes since majority of the employees are way too proud and over confident. lack of improvements due to little knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Try to promote based on skills and think outside of the box by listening to new employees who has better ideas or different views

    Middle managers need to be involved and more visible to their teams daily tasks. They need to have better understanding of their employees long term career goals.
